German OB Truck is Fully IP

German mobile production company TV Skyline’s new Ü8 UHD OB truck is reportedly the first such vehicle to be based on fully IP-implemented audio and video stageboxes, from Lawo.

Rastatt, Germany (September 4, 2015)—German mobile production company TV Skyline’s new Ü8 UHD OB truck is reportedly the first such vehicle to be based on fully IP-implemented audio and video stageboxes, from Lawo.

The new concept was made possible through the use of V__Link4 IP-based stageboxes and RAVENNA DALLIS routing from Lawo, who were not only involved with Ü8 as manufacturer, but also a as development partner. TV Skyline and Lawo jointly developed the optimized network structure that underpins the mobile studio.

Integrated into the IP network are four V__link4 stageboxes and a Lawo mc256 mixing console. Also integrated into Ü8 are 10 Lawo V__view1 units for converting IP-based MJPEG streams into HDMI signals with minimal latency.

Laurent Schiltz, CTO of TV Skyline comments, “From the very beginning, the flexibility and the technical possibilities of the V__link4 stagebox and IP solutions convinced us that a truck based on IP technology would bring us a new and promising (future-proof) chapter in television production. We now can react more flexibly and quickly than ever to on-site customer requirements. Beyond that, we can offer completely new production methods – such as the remote productions that are becoming increasingly popular – at the same time. And we can do it with the same equipment.”
